The $7,000 gaming rig in my sig is now 10 years old, and I still use it for gaming. It runs everything I ask of it, and does it great. The hardware has never had a problem with.

I am going to be buying my new Digital Storm Gaming PC in under a month from now. Waiting for the Xmas rush to be over with. Planning on reviewing that new PC here as well. I don't think you could any better than DS for your PC, as they make great systems.

My new gaming PC is going to be this,

Chassis Model: Digital Storm Lynx
Exterior Finish: - Standard Factory Finish
Trim Accents: - Standard Factory Finish
Processor: Intel Core i5-14600KF (5.3 GHz Turbo) (20-Thread) (14-Core) 3.5 GHz (14th Gen)

Storage Set 1: 1x SSD M.2 (2TB Samsung 990 PRO) (NVM Express)
Internet Access: High Speed Network Port (Supports High-Speed Cable / DSL / Network Connections)
Graphics Card(s): 1x GeForce RTX 4080 16GB (VR Ready)
Sound Card: Integrated Motherboard Audio
Extreme Cooling: H20: Stage 3: Digital Storm Vortex Liquid CPU Cooler (Triple Fan) (Fully Sealed + No Maintenance)
Cable Management: Premium Cable Management (Strategically Routed & Organized for Airflow)
Chassis Fans: Digital Storm Performance Series (RGB Fans)
Internal Lighting: Remote Controlled Advanced LED Lighting System (Multiple RGB Color Modes)
CPU Boost: Turbo Boost Technology

Priority Build: - No Thanks, Ship Within 10-15 Business Days After Order Is Successfully Processed
Warranty: Life-time Expert Care with 3 Year Limited Warranty (3 Year Labor & 1 Year Part Replacement)

I did remove everything I left blank.

Looks great!

Hey, I moved your message over here so it wouldn't get buried in that necro thread. Easier for The Smart Guys® to come take a look.

Does the Lynx case have fan mounts on the inside of the top of the case?

I don't know about the fan mounts, but I highly recommend you ditch the liquid cooler for the Noctua NH-D15. It will give similar performance especially on that proc. When the all-in-one fails, it's a complete replacement. If the Noctua fails, you replace the fan that went bad. Aside from that, it's a solid build.

1 I found out that the case does have mounts on the top inside of the case.

2 I feel better with the liquid cooler. I may OC it a bit.
